ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico's largest city is under a flooding warning as the once dry Rio Grande is expected is rise amid heavy rain.
Albuquerque Mayor Richard Berry is scheduled Saturday to outline details and emergency plans for residents around the river.
A day after parts of the state saw "life threatening" floods, Albuquerque officials worry that runoff water in the Rio Grande could cause the river's level to rise up to 12 feet above normal. That would result in potential bosque flooding throughout the city and Bernalillo County.
Officials say that community centers are on standby if evacuation is needed and the police department is flying Air One to monitor the Rio Grande and levy water levels.
Some residents in Las Vegas and Truth or Consequence were ordered to evacuate Friday.
